4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Sacramento state is a university full of opportunities, with outstanding staff whom work hard everyday to make of their students professional and educated beings. This university has widely opened doors to minorities, people with disabilities, and everyone who is eager to learn and expand their knowledge. It offers a wide scale of majors, clubs, and organizations that are fit for everyone, making it feel like a home away from home.

Overall Experience: I really like the campus and the city, I am new to Sacramento and the campus. But the first impressions really have me sold. It is the perfect size of a city to enjoy things that a city has to offer as well as a more open city kind of feel. With that, the camps have a lot of very nice buildings and they are also expanding the campus constantly. To me, That is good because I show what I feel that my school will represent and that is innovation. Also, the faculty seems to be very intuned even though there are a lot of students. But on another note, the school does as much as it can to help its students

5 College Senior

Overall Experience: My favorite thing about CSUS is it's professors. I have grown attached to some professors in my program, and they are the reason I am excited about my career. They are so approachable and caring. Lots of courses are offered and the classes each have their own style. the class sizes are usually medium but there are some big classes.

5 College Senior

Overall Experience: There are many job/internship opportunities offered through the school, especially one's specific program. The Alumni are helpful. There are job fairs and events that make it possible for employers to recruit on campus.

4 College Senior

Health & Safety: The first thing I notcied about the campus is that there are always police cars driving around. In the Union, I always see security and there is the option of calling a campus cab/cart to drive you at night if you feel unsafe. overall, they take it seriously. There has been stories of sexual assault and dangerous encounters in elevators or the parking garages, but not a lot.

3 College Senior

Campus Housing: I live at home, so I don't have personal experience but my friends who each say something different about it. If I didn't live at home, I would maybe prefer an apartment over dorms, because I hear it gets distracting when one needs to study or focus. But it has a fun social atmosphere.

4 College Senior

Greek Life: I know very little about the Greek life on campus. I am usually on campus to study with friends, so I'm less aware about the extracurricular activities being held on campus.

4 College Senior

Athletics: I think that the students who are involved in sports at CSUS become very passionate and serious about it. I think other schools might have more fan support, but there is a good amount. The school spirit, however, is high and very noticeable.

4 College Senior

Overall Experience: California State University - Sacramento offers a great Speech and Language Pathology program, which is why it was one of my top options for my undergraduate career. My major is very important to me, and CSUS has made it such a good experience. The professors in my program are so helpful and approachable, and they really care about their students. I'm happy where I currently am and what i'm studying.

Greek Life: I really don't care about Greek life in college. Some are good. Some are odd. Some are bad. I can't really say because I'm not in the clubs.

4 College Sophomore

Athletics: The athletics in the scholarship is good. People encourage the gym and just going outside to jog or what not. The gym is probably my favorite place to go workout in.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: My first school year was pretty good. I live in dorms and that made it easier to commute to classes. My academics are going better than high-school so that's a plus. Overall, it was a good year and I'm looking forward to my next year.

Overall ExperienceWhat's this?

View student contributors

Most students appreciate Sac State because it's pleasant, but they often wish it had more school spirit. The ones who are satisfied with it usually haven't been to other four-year universities, so they don't have anything major to compare it to from first-hand experience. Those who wish for more excitement usually mention wilder Bay Area campuses. A majority of people that attend Sac State just want a degree so they can get out. They know not to expect the typical college experience that makes for legendary times and awesome memories. Too many of them commute. If Sac State were more of an on-campus school, there would be more student satisfaction socially. If you decide to study here and want campus community, seek clubs or other social organizations as soon as possible. If you're laid-back and don't mind coming to a school where everyone just comes to get a grade and a job, make yourself at home.

Many students would be blown away if they knew how hard their education could be, but a lot of them are fine with Sac State's current academic level. Most assignments are easy, and it's surprising what students worry about. There's a writing test, the Writing Proficiency Exam, that all students must take before advancing to higher-level classes, and it has a fearsome reputation because many of them make a big deal about it. But in reality, it's nothing more than an in-class essay where you offer your opinion on a certain topic—that's all. Although most Sac State students don't think their education is lacking, when they voice concerns, it's obvious that something's missing. If they were used to consistently working harder, that test would be a breeze.
